UP-KAT: Understanding public knowledge and attitududes towards trafficing in human beings: A cross-national study

Duration: 
January, 2013 to December, 2014
Funding: 
Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship

The overall aim of this 24-month project is to research, evaluate, and disseminate a broader understanding of how Trafficking in Human Beings (THB) is understood by the general public in countries of the enlarged EU and its neighbour states. The project will assess the influence of socio-economic, demographic and attitudinal factors on public knowledge and understanding of THB by situating the analysis within socio-economic and political contexts of the countries of origin, transit and destination for THB. The findings will aid in the development of anti-trafficking policies and targeted public awareness campaigns.
